● MN 82 Raṭṭhapāla: Then Raṭṭhapāla thought:
“My parents don’t allow me to go forth.” He laid down there on the bare ground, saying:
“I’ll either die right here or go forth.”
And he refused to eat, up to the seventh meal.
Then Raṭṭhapāla’s parents said to him:
“Dear Raṭṭhapāla, youʼre our only child. You’re dear to us and we love you. You’re dainty and raised in comfort.
